Each year, on International Youth Day, 12 August, the global YMCA Movement celebrates the many achievements of its staff and volunteers. We believe that young people are at the centre of the solution to make our world a better place.
The theme of International Youth Day 2021 is “Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health”. To mark the Day, we are pleased to share three YMCA stories which illustrate the theme. Young women and men from Togo, East Jerusalem and USA are stepping up to innovate and to have a positive impact on their communities.
